Mouser Electronics, a leading authorized distributor with the latest semiconductors and electronic components, announced that for the third year in a row the company is proud to sponsor Texas Instruments’ Innovation Challenge European Design Contest, which is designed to encourage engineering students to submit
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been the topic conferences, articles, and blogs. Much of this has focused on the standards for communication and security of the information and devices. Just as important is powering the myriad of devices that comprise the IoT. It is worthwhile to first describe what makes up
In today’s increasingly hyperconnected world, it is essential that all new designs minimize power consumption and are protected from being cloned, reverse engineered, or tampered with in order to protect embedded intellectual property, system data, and the system itself. FPGAs play a key role in meeting
The easily discerned lines separating cyberspace and the “real world” are disappearing. With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), physical objects are increasingly integrated in information systems and individuals are interacting with vast distributed networks dozens of times a day. Clearly, the IoT
Ultra-precision, high-side current sensing is crucial in applications where one must measure the current entering or leaving a battery. Today many digital multimeters feature four-lead Kelvin sensing to eliminate the series resistance of the multimeter leads and give an accurate voltage drop across a given resistor.
